AOW believes families come in many different forms. We do not discriminate based on age, gender, gender identity, sexual orientation, marital status or fertility status. We welcome

If you and/or your partner identify as LGBTQ and are hoping to adopt, you have come to the right place. We want all prospective parents to succeed in their hopes of starting (or continuing) a family through adoption and help them secure legal, equal rights to their children.

All families, including LGBTQ families, have multiple ways to add to their families through adoption.
